Abstract : SERDP project MR-1443 entitled Man-portable Vector Time Domain EMI Sensor and Discrimination Processing is complete. This report contains the final design, engineering challenges, modeling advancements, and data analysis results from this project. This combination of vector receivers coupled with a laser positioning system resulted in a versatile prototype instrument delivering high quality, diverse data well suited to rigorous models of UXO and soil. New algorithms aimed at utilizing the high quality data from the MPV were developed including the Generalized Standardized Excitations Approach (GSEA) and Normalized Surface Magnetic Source (NSMS). Results from this project suggest a further need for high quality, hand held, production instruments in the time domain suited to UXO remediation efforts. The MPV2 instrument incorporates a redesign of the MPV concept.
